Christmas is coming, the geese are getting fat…and so will I if I’m not careful! Have done so much travelling, which means eating rubbish airport food and ‘desperation snacks’. (Anyone else do ‘desperation’ snacking? When you’re so hungry that your stomach feels as though it’s digesting itself?) I’m trying to counteract the snacking with a lot of juices and salads and peppermint tea.
As I write this, I am travelling once again – this time to the Midlands. I’m on a Virgin Pendolino train and it keeps tipping over to the side rather alarmingly. Typing is hard, so I’ll try and keep this brief; this is the second volume of the Christmas Gift Guide, and it’s my pick of a few little stocking fillers that I think are gorgeous and useful.
Pens and papers at the ready, merry shoppers! (Or if you are penless, there’s a list of product with prices and stockist suggestion underneath the video.) This is also a first glance for many of my new haircut – I had it chopped whilst in New York last week for the new KMS California campaign. We like?
